CARVIREN case of study

1CARVIREN has been one of our favorite projects. This experiment (inside Experimedia) has been a challange. Not only for the first use of muscle oxygen saturation in an European Project, but also due the development of the Trampolin widget.

Currently, the machines to measure fligth time in this olimpic discipline is quite expensive and difficult to use. With Carviren we wanted to do it with WIMU, synchronizing with video, heart rate and oxigen saturation and display all of it in a friendly website.

Do you want to know more about the challenges and how we faced them? Check out our CARVIREN case of Study.

CARVIREN Experiment Promotional Video

From RealTrack Systems we would like to thank Experimedia Partners and rest of Experimenters the great support during the whole experiment. We know there were a few tricky days, with a lot of tension and tons of work. But we all got through.

The best part has been meeting you all, top human value from each single one of you. Although we’ve only been in the project for a year, we had the feeling that we were welcome since the first moment.

We wish to all Experimedia participants the best of lucks. Hopefully, we will work together again soon.This is not the end, just the beginning, of many more goals to achieve with the Experimedia Association, and we, RealTrack, are very exciting about it!

First Run of CARVIREN

Last Monday (28th of July), we were at the CAR running the first of the two runs required by Experimedia.

We were testing CARVIREN. For those who catch up on us now, here is a small remember about “what’s CARVIREN?”:

Carviren is a virtual network for the CAR, where athletes and coaches can access using a rolling system and check in real time or delayed mode the different training sessions recorded. Information is visualized using a widgets system called Sportwis. These sportwis give elaborate information in a simple and visual way, so rapid feedback can be achieved.

For recording the raw data we use WIMU in its dual way: as a hub (collecting data from external ANT+ sensors) and as a collector device (with its inside sensors: accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, etc.).

 

Disciplines tested

We tested two disciplines: trampoline and triatlon. For the trampoline discipline we were testing our monitor “jumps”, that measures flight time, forces and high. For triatlon we tested Moxy (monitorization of oxygen in the muscle during the excersice).

Experimedia 2014: Carviren demonstration

Two weeks ago, Realtrack was on the Barcelona meeting at the CAR of Sant Cugat. We were assisting to the Experimedia General Assamble, where all the experimenters were going to be reviewed.

Three demonstration were scheduled for those days: Playhist (Tecnalia), 3DRSBA (Qualysis) and CARVIREN (Realtrack Systems).

A brief recap about CARVIREN:

Carviren is a virtual network for the CAR, where athletes and coaches can access using a rolling system and check in real time or delayed mode the different training sessions recorded. Information is visualized using a widgets system called Sportwis. These sportwis give elaborate information in a simple and visual way, so rapid feedback can be achieved.

For recording the raw data we use WIMU in its dual way: as a hub (collecting data from external ANT+ sensors) and as a collector device (with its inside sensors: accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, etc.).

Our demonstration consisted in a accessing the Carviren website using 3 types of roles:

  1. Administrator (full access)IMG_8723
  2. Trampoline coach (access to the trampoline widgets)
  3. Gymnast coach (access to the life video of the gymnast area)

 

 

 

At the same time, we had an athlete from Trampoline jumping and doing a session:IMG_20140513_185704

 

 

 

 

 

 

And also an on going session broadcasting video in the Gymnast Female area:

GYM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The aim of the demonstration was to access to the CARVIREN experiment using an Iphone (IOS), an Android tablet and a Laptop (Windows); show different information according to the different roles and all of it, in real time:

 

This experiment was focused on Real time, next demonstration will add new Sportwis (like the flying time for trampoline) and the Recording System and database (for  the delay mode).

Stay tuned, we will keep you posted!

 

 

Experimedia 2013/4: CAR Virtual Network, by RealTrack

Hello there!

RealTrack is very happy to introduce you, our Experimenfor the Second Experimedia Open Call 2013: The CARVIREN

CAR VIRtual ENvironment consists in the development of a Virtual Community for the Centre D’alt Rendiment d’Esports.

RealTrack is going to develop a system where a series of WIMUs will collect data from many CAR devices (Heart Rate belts, cameras, podometers, oxygen in the muscle, etc.) and will transformthis raw data into Elaborated Information (either in Real Time or delayed), and offers it using a Widgets System (called Sportwis), accessible by Smartphone, Tablet or PC, directly in the VENUE or Remotely (in wherever part in the World)

Carviren1a

Information can come from multiple devices: wearables, machines, cam-recorders or information stored in the Database. It means a lot of raw data that needs to be processed in order to be useful. In High Performance Centres, elaborated information is the Key. And that is our main goal with the experiment, the aim is to improve performance thanks to the Rapid Feedback.

This Experimedia project gives us the oportunity to work with some of the most important research centres in Europe, the High Performance Centre of Catalonia (CAR) and powerfull companies like ATOS. Here is the list of Experimedia Partners.

The Oportunity is huge, the challenge is amazin and the Consortium is great. We are willing to start and we will tell you how it’s going on.
